Putah Creek Wildlife Area Reopens for Public Use

The Putah Creek Wildlife Area in Solano County has reopened for public use as of Saturday, July 9, 2016. The wildlife area was closed in August 2015 to allow recovery from the Wragg Fire. Though the area continues to recover from the fire and winter rains, the slopes are now sufficiently stable to allow safe public access without incurring environmental damage.

Hikers are advised to choose their footing carefully and exercise caution as underlying surfaces of the existing trails may have undergone shifting and fallen trees and other hazards may still be present. As always, avoid hiking in extreme heat, wear appropriate footwear and bring plenty of water.

Putah Creek Wildlife Area is located in Solano County just east of Lake Berryessa.
